Tourism is vital to the area’s economy

I have lived, worked and raised a family in Seaton for more than 30 years. I am now an accommodation provider concerned that my business, along with others in the town, will struggle through lack of vision from Seaton Town Council.

I had hoped against hope that the STC would eventually realise how detrimental closing the well situated TIC, with its wonderful, knowledgable staff, would be on the town.

In a recent meeting for accommodation providers, I sat in disbelief as Mr Mears and Mrs Semple asked us if we had any ideas about what the closed TIC building could be used for in the meantime, to prevent it from being another boarded up building. I was left speechless! It will not take a lot of guessing to know our reply... a TIC of course.

So, what do Seaton Town Council think will make Seaton a thriving re-generated town and keep it on the map? Obviously not tourism.
